In another rare type of headache, called short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache, 20 per cent of the 15 people in the study had facial pain.
Overall, facial involvement was reported in 45.0, 21.4, and 20.0 percent, respectively, of patients with paroxysmal hemicrania, hemicrania continua, and short-lasting neuralgiform headache attacks with conjunctival injection and tearing/short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache attacks with cranial autonomic symptoms.
Facial pain also affected 21% of patients with hemicrania continua, a headache with continuous pain that varies in severity; 20% of those with short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform, a headache characterized by frequent attacks on one side of the head; 15% of those with cluster headache; and 2% of migraine sufferers, the investigators found.
Short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache with conjunctival injection and tearing/short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache with cranial autonomic features (SUNCT/SUNA) is a subgroup of trigeminal autonomic cephalalgia.
Each group was further subdivided based on causation; chronic migraine, CTTH, shortlasting unilateral neuralgiform headache with conjunctival injection (SUNCT), NDPH, medication overuse chronic cluster headache, and hemicrania continua being included in the first group whereas intracranial neoplasm (Glioma), neurocysticercosis and tuberculoma being included in the latter group.
The differential diagnosis of classic TN includes short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache with conjunctival injection and tearing (SUNCT), clustertic syndrome, jabs and jolts syndrome, and other painful facial neuralgias.
